Radio and television personality Masechaba Ndlovu has been allegedly fired from Metro FM. As a result at the end of this month when her contract expires at the radio station her services will not be renewed for another term.
Many reports and rumours are attributing the reason behind her not returning to Metro FM the controversial interviews where she confronted Babes Wodumo about Mampintsha’s alleged abuse. This caused many Metro FM drive listeners to voice their distain at how she approached the matter.
It is reported that Mampintsha laid a formal complaint with the Broadcasting Complaints Commission of SA and the SABC, complaining that he was not given a right of reply.
It is believed that at this time the SABC are in a process of reviewing contracts of freelance on-air talent and will notify the freelances of whether or not they will be part of the SABC going forward.
If the firing allegations are true hopefully it doesn’t deter other from speaking up against abuse. Preferably speak up on an appropriate platform of course.
